The Fabulous Serpent Ring

Shana Kroiz (my absolute favorite artist) has done a series of rings that are one size fit all.  This is the first series of rings I have ever seen her make and she has really made a statement with this avant garde collection.  She is offering the Serpent Ring shown in the image above for sale online at http://artjewelryonline.com/rings1.html but she also has images on her website of a more extensive ring line. You may view them at http://shanakroiz.com/gallery_sk.html.

My Favorite Necklace

The Open Pebbles necklace by Lori Gottlieb is my all time favorite piece of jewelry.  Not only are green tourmalines my favorite colored gemstone but I like the feminine  yet bold nature of this piece. http://artjewelryonline.com/lorigottlieb3.html

Deb Karash is one of my favorite jewelry artists. She uses colored pencils on metal in a style that is uniquely hers.


Artist Statement

"The creation and collection of jewelry, for me, is about intimacy. Something personal is expressed in the wearing of handmade jewelry."

Fusing the intuitive nature of drawing and the technical skills of metalsmithing, Deb Karash combines copper, silver, brass and colored pencil into wearable, portable works of art. First applying layers of colored pencil to a textured copper surface, Karash then suspends the copper over cool sterling to bring each piece to life.

Karash views her work as a subtle statement about personality and the mystery of the spirit. Mechanical, metaphorical, and emotional layers and connections play a crucial role in Deb Karash's work and in her life as a maker.

I am not a big fan of beaded necklaces but this lemon quarts necklace by Sydney Lynch is stunning. I just hope I can get her to join ArtJewelryOnline.com.

Polymer Clay is the first medium that I worked with to fabricate jewelry.  I loved the colors and patterned design potential. This polymer clay design shows all my favorite shades of blue and green.  Now that there are tools to press out the long rows of squares and shapes this design is not so arduous as it used to be.  You may view other Polymer Clay designs at their Facebook page. See more Polymer Clay designs at their Facebook page entitled Polymer Clay Artists. http://on.fb.me/O9qWdi

My son found some clothes from a company called Paper Denim & Cloth at Marshall's and they were contemporary and affordable.  Come to find out this company disappeared for a while and is coming back.  When they re-launch they are worth your while to take a look. http://www.paperdenimandcloth.com/
